§ 36. Mr. J. SANDEMAN ALLEN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies out of what funds the Tabora-Shinyanga line in Tanganyika Territory is being constructed; whether a suitable route to connect Shinyanga with Mwanza has been surveyed; and whether there is any prospect of the Tabora-Shinyanga line being prolonged to Mwanza at an early date, in view of the rapid development of cotton-growing in the region that would be served by this line?
§ Mr. AMERY
Up to the present construction has been paid for out of loan grants-in-aid provided in current Colonial Services Estimates. The preliminary surveys of the Shinyanga-Mwanza section are expected to be ready early this December, and I hope that it will be possible to start construction as soon as the route has been settled.
